Every Tuesday and Thursday I carpool to school with a friend, and instead of paying gas money to each other we have decided to trade favors. So saw she drives one day, that day I'll buy her a cup of coffee, or if I drive she'll get me some coffee.

For this learning assignment I decided to just think of a clever way to get incentives for doing work and an alternative currency.

Say for doing 100 hours of community service, they get 100 points which translates to 100 dollar rebate.

Any of his ideas that he posts that I feasibly can get involved with I will so I can do more than just spreading the word.

A danish water bottle company (Kildevæld) has come up with a genius incentive to get people to purchase bottles of water from them. For every bottle you purchase they donate a “life straws” which help filter water so people in developing countries can have clean water. These little devices would give me an incentive to buy for sure because I know when I buy water, I'm helping someone else drink fresh water. Ideas like this hopefully will keep spreading to other companies and we can help save… Continue
